In his book “Do it or Age Quickly,” JB Berns says that one of the ways you can help your body better digest is by rubbing your belly counterclockwise with your left hand. I’ll often do this for a few minutes before getting out of bed when I’m planning on hitting the gym for an early morning sweat session, but haven’t fully digested my dinner yet…it really helps! Bliss’ new Fat Girl Six Pack is kind of the same idea. In a tongue and cheek way the product, which launches this month, promises you a toned core, which obviously you’re not going to get without diet and exercise, but there’s definitely is something to this product thanks to its nubbed applicator. Unlike any other tummy toning product I’ve tried with this one you twist the top of the bottle and a gel is dispensed which you then massage into your stomach using this special applicator. The combination of the gel formula itself and the nubbed applicator leave you with a relaxing, warm sensation.
Again, you’re obviously not going to get a six pack from a gel, but I strongly believe this kind of stimulating massage technique helps body circulation and along with diet and exercise can help tone your body as it eases the digestive process. The product itself is formulated with caffeine, mentol, and oat kernal extract (this, with the menthol, are what helps give that warm/firming sensation). Expect to feel a warming/firming sensation after just a few seconds (it will last for a few minutes thereafter).
